Do you love yourself? Do you even like yourself? If you answered no, why not? If you were to think long and hard, you may find this feeling towards yourself rooted in unforgiveness. Many of us, myself included, struggle to forgive ourselves. We may have done things in the past, we regret and may even live with the consequences of those past sins. This may cause guilt, lack of self-esteem and even self-hatred. Did you know that this self-hatred gives your body permission to destroy itself?
Seeing the best in others
We assume things about other people, often the worst. Instead of giving them the benefit of the doubt, we react based on what we have made up in our minds about them. We don’t even attempt to find the truth. These assumptions are often born out of our own insecurities and fear of rejection. This assumption thing ruins relationships. We need to learn to see the best in others…
How should we pray?
We have discussed the basic of way we should pray and what prayer can achieve in our lives. Now we will focus a bit more on the act of praying. We will investigate what the Scriptures say about things like attitude, frequency and posture. Hopefully, this will provide us with an even more holistic view of prayer.
Obedience follows repentance
I have come to realize that asking for forgiveness, is much more than a few words you speak when you pray. Have you considered what repentance really is? Do you know how to repent? What is proper repentance? Is your repentance real or just empty words? Do you continue doing the same sin after you have repented? There is a proper way to repent and there are ways to overcome sin.
